Toronto FC's impressive off-season continued on Monday as the club announced the acquisition of Argentine forward Pablo Vitti on loan from Independiente of Argentina after spending time on loan with FC Chernomorets Odessa of the Ukrainian First Division.
Vitti, 23, first made an impression on Toronto FC fans last year when he scored a goal for Argentine club Independiente in a 1-0 exhibition win against TFC. A member of the Argentine Under-20 national team that won the 2005 Under-20 World Cup, Vitti (pictured above doing battle with Maurice Edu) is expected to step in and challenge for a starting role in a stable of forwards that includes Danny Dichio, Chad Barrett and Abdus Ibrahim.
What do you think of the acquisition? Like the idea of Toronto landing a player like this on a loan? Think this is the last of Mo Johnston's off-season deals? Are you starting to consider Toronto FC a playoff lock?
